HITS HIGH FIVE: YOUR TOP STORIES,
PRE-ROLLED

In the earlier decades of our stonerhood, weed was weed. Whatever the shaggy dude who met you in the parking lot happened to be hawking was what you got; it came in a plastic sandwich bag and cost 60 bucks. But one of the friends you smoked it with, invariably, would speak prophetically of the coming era of legalization. "I'm telling you, man," he'd wheeze, exhaling a plume of bong smoke, "One day you're gonna go into a store and just buy a pack of joints like they're cigarettes." 

Well, as we know, that kid was the Oracle of frickin' Delphi. Because not only can you buy those joints, but they're gorgeously packaged and available in whatever configuration you could desire. Only the kids call it "flower," not bud, and "pre-rolls," not joints.

In honor of these changing times, we bring you the top stories of the moment, conveniently rolled up in one tidy package. Let's get baked—er, "elevated!"
